Introduction to List Building
Building an email list is typically a time consuming process that costs not only a tremendous amount of time, but also a lot of money. Unfortunately, that’s just the way it has always been. At least until now!
There are actually plenty of sources of subscribers that many people have never thought about, yet they can really boost your subscriber numbers. Just a few minutes spent each day can net you a big number of subscribers with very little effort and little to no monetary investment.
Some of these may be a little new to you. Others you may have heard about and forgotten to take advantage of. Some may even be methods you figured were ineffective and never bothered to try. But they can all be effective.
In this report, you’re going to learn about some of the different methods of finding more email subscribers and getting them to opt-in to your list. You’ll also find out how to make better looking, more exciting and more effective squeeze pages that will dramatically increase your opt-in rate.
Let’s get started.
How to Make an Effective Squeeze Page
Before you start working on finding new sources of subscribers, it’s a good idea to first make sure your squeeze page is performing as effectively as possible. Why waste potential subscribers on an underperforming squeeze page? Those people could be gone forever!
One of the most effective ways to increase squeeze page conversions is to turn your squeeze pages into something out of the ordinary. This is easier said than done if you don’t know much about design or programming, right?
There are numerous plugins for WP that makes it incredibly easy to create highly effective squeeze pages that will convert like crazy, because they add all sorts of new features that grab attention and encourage user participation.
Best of all, the web-based interface allows you to dive in and create your own pages with absolutely no design or programming experience whatsoever. If you can use email and sites like Facebook, you can use this program!
What types of features can you add with some of these plugins?
- Gorgeous high-resolution backgrounds
- Awesome formatting options
- Attention grabbing animations
- Easy to learn how to use (slight learning curve as with most)
Plus, you’ll get these benefits and more:
- a lot of pre-made template sets
- Works with all major autoresponders
- Has diverse options for videos
- Works in any browser on any device
If you want to create squeeze pages that will convert like crazy, you can either hire a designer to do it for you and spend a ton of money (as well as time communicating back and forth to get exactly what you want), or you can use one of the many WP Plugins and get exactly what you want every time!
Using Social Media to Build Your List
Most people aren’t using social media effectively to increase their email subscribers. They may be sending people to the same squeeze page over and over, or not even sending people to their squeeze page at all!
In order to make the most out of social media, it’s a good idea to keep your squeeze page as fresh as possible by creating new versions regularly and offering new content. Instead of having the same free report available all the time, freshen things up by coming up with new angles and new content to keep people interested.
Facebook and Twitter are both great sources of subscribers, but you need to have fresh content, and you need to be sure you follow the rules carefully so you don’t end up banned, or at the very least alienating the audience you’re trying to reach.
On Facebook, you can join various groups in your niche and post. Just remember that you’ll probably want to become a part of the community before posting any advertising, because people generally frown on drive by ads in Facebook groups!
Also, be sure you read the group rules carefully!
No sense even joining a group if they specifically state no ads allowed.
Wrapping This Post Up...
Building an email list has never been easier than it is right now and as we go into 2018.
There is a seemingly endless supply of free traffic available for the taking if you know where to look, and turning it into subscribers is as simple as creating a compelling offer and a high converting squeeze page to present it.
Using the some of the ideas and tools outlined in this post, you can easily ramp up your subscriber base in no time.
Just work a little each day implementing these methods, and before you know it, your email list will explode to a size you never even thought was possible.
Don’t forget that you can search for your own sources, as well. The more creative you get, the less competition you’ll have, because fewer people will be using your methods!
I wish you the best of luck growing your list.
